"I write in the hopes that my birth mother will find me"

My foray into the world of words didn't start on paper, but by reading everything I could get my
hands on.  At the age of five years, as soon as I could say 'may I help you?' I worked in my parents
variety shop.  By the third grade, I had been promoted to the job of ordering the magazines and
newspapers we sold: Ebony, Jet, Sepia, Tan, The Indianapolis Recorder, The Pittsburgh Courier
and The Chicago Defender.  This was right up my alley because I got to read them before
everyone else.  I often wondered if our customers knew they were reading "used" material!

In junior high school, I apprenticed under the guidance of the late Mrs. Georgia Lucas of Muncie
Indiana and co-wrote an article for The Indianapolis Recorder.  She wrote the news portion and I
wrote " "Teen Talk".  I knew then I was a writer.

As an adoptee, I wanted to weigh in on the ever increasing popularity of the subject of adoption
therefore, I wrote
LOVED TO DEATH: A Different Kind of Love Story and LOVED TO DEATH: The
Truth Unfolds.
The first few pages of  the first  LOVED TO DEATH: A Different Kind of Love Story,
were developed from an actual dream I experienced.  The rest of the book literally had a mind of
its' own. It is a symbolic story about how adoption "kills" the adoptee.  I am also writing
DEATH: The City Awakens
and Looking for Stella Delaware which ironically was based on a
another dream I experienced!
